My ex-wife and her new husband make significantly more money than I do and yet I am still asked to pay more child support than I can afford.
What can I do to get these payments modified so they are fair?
While I am not licensed to practice law in your state, I can give some general guidance on this issue.
If you believe her income was not correctly calculated or her new spouse’s income was not included, you should file a motion to modify child support. The Judge will likely request that you both bring in your financial documents and the Judge can recalculate child support.
However, I would suggest that you not wait to do this because the modification will only be retroactive to the date you filed the motion.
Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips, so please consult a domestic litigation attorney in your area to obtain specific advice as to the laws in your state and how they impact your potential case.
